I hope you will enjoy the images presented on this website. Most of my work has been inspired by my appreciation of fine art, and the beauty and mystery of our world and lives.
John Zappala was formally educated in graphic design, fine arts and art education. He received an associate's degree from Farmingdale State University and a bachelor's degree from St. John's University.
In the early 70's, he realized that photography was his calling and career path. He started out photographing weddings and portraits and soon expanded his photographic skills and client base to include product photography, special events and fashion.
During the course of his career, he has worked for many fortune five hundred companies, including some of the world's biggest department stores. His portfolio includes dozens of the well-known celebrities and luminaries of our times.
Presently, he is working for a select group of clients and is developing his own style of photographic art, which he sells in the form of greeting cards and poster size prints in book stores and independently owned shops throughout the country.
John Zappala enjoys sharing his knowledge of photography and does so in the form of adult education classes and seminars which are held throughout the state of Connecticut.
